There are so many types of readers, those who reads without following the blog, those who are interested in this one blog and instead of following they just typed the blog link instead, those who are looking for blogs to follow, some follow after saw some interesting content and want some engagement with that particular blog and many more. Some of us need to make our follow button fancy and very visible so that readers recognize it, and give us a follow.
This post is a master post of how to customize your own blogs follow button. Instead of using Google Followers Widget, we can use our follow direct link and turn it into a follow button made of an image, or maybe a button using some CSS tricks.
